This alert is a little different than the usual. We would like to first direct you to this alert ÔÇ£Central Idaho Economic Development and Recreation Act ÔÇ£, (CIEDRA) initially sent out in April.┬á The bill in the House is referred to as H.R. 3603.┬á Now is the best time to get this bill killed.

We are including links to three form letters provided to us by the Idaho State Snowmobile Association (ISSA).┬á Thank YouÔÇÖs are extended to the ISSA for this material.┬á If you are currently a member of the ISSA, you should have received these in the mail and been provided with envelopes for mailing them.┬á The attachments are in RTF (rich text) format, which can be opened and printed from WordPad, a program that comes with Windows.┬á If you use a MAC, they will also work with TextEdit.┬á The letters are addressed to Congressman Mike Simpson (R-ID), Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) and House Resources Committee Chairman Richard Pombo (R-CA).
